Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY - Dozens of extremist colonial Israeli settlers broke Tuesday into the Islamic holy court yards of Al-Aqsa Mosque via Moroccan gate under heavy protection of Israeli occupation police.
The Jerusalem Waqf and Al-Aqsa Mosque Affairs Department reported that dozens of Israeli settlers broke into the holy court yards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, toured it and performed Talmudic rituals in the eastern part.
Israeli occupation police impose tight restrictions on the access of Jerusalemites to Al-Aqsa Mosque, check out their ID cards and seizes them at the gates.
Thousands of Palestinians have organized on Saturday an activity to clean and prepare the holy yards for prayers in the holy Ramadan.
Palestinians are keen to perform prayers and worship at Al-Aqsa Mosque, in the holy month.
Jerusalemites fear that the Israeli occupation forces will harass them, as large-scale confrontations broke out, as happened in the month of Ramadan last year.
Last May, specifically on the 28th of Ramadan, members of the Israeli occupation police stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and violent confrontations broke out with the worshipers and stationed in the mosque, resulting in the injury of more than 330 Palestinian civilians, 7 of whom were in a serious condition, according to media data and eyewitnesses.
